Aspen, Colorado 2002

In the summer of 2002, I participated in the American Academy of Conducting at Aspen in Colorado.

I conducted in masterclasses with David Zinman (Wagner - Tristan & Isolde, Mahler - Symphony #2, Weill - Threepenny Opera), David Robertson (Bartok - Music for Strings Percussion & Celesta), and pictured here: James Conlon (Berlioz - Symphonie fantastique).

Inspired by Sir Charles Mackerras, I also conducted Janacek's 1st String Quartet in an arrangement for string orchestra.

It is always a pleasure to speak with the audience about the music, and as a part of David Zinman's conducting class, I helped script and perform a "Family Concert".
